I went back to the PS4 remastered version of Rogue Galaxy . And remembered why I hadn’t continued with it - a brick feckin’ wall in the shape of the first boss. Yep, that’s right - first boss.
What took some time to work out - and it made the boss fight much harder - is the camera is always centred on the character, which means a big enemy, like this boss, goes out of view - if you can’t see it, you can’t counter it and all of its attacks do 25-33% damage, yep 2-3 hits you are done. For all we talk of the Souls sub-genre now, go back a decade or so and that difficulty was standard, game’s really did want to punish your arse.
This time though, after a few tries, I actually managed to hop on the damn platforms, take out the heart and then, just about do the head and kill the ****er. So I might actually get somewhere on this now. Or I’ll hit another feckin’ wall.
Also kicked off, but only at the very, very start of PS4 version of Dark Chronicle . Got it for £3.29, along with Dark Cloud , so have a trio of PS2-era RPG classics.
